Texas-based singer, Lyle Lovett will bring his Acoustic Group to The Majestic Theatre on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 8:00PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 2 at 10AM.
A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Since his self-titled debut in 1986, Lyle Lovett has evolved into one of music's most vibrant and iconic performers.
Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association's inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.
Lovett has been touring in support of Release Me since its release in February, 2012. The album was #1 for several weeks on the Americana charts. Release Me is quintessential Lyle, mixing a smart collection of originals and songs written by some of his favorite songwriters that show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most infectious and fascinating musicians in popular music.
His oeuvre, rich and eclectic, is one of the most beloved of any living artist working today.
